Former acting ICE director Tom Homan warned of a flood of illegal immigration under a Joe Biden presidency Wednesday, saying cartels are already celebrating.

Homan said, during an interview with Fox & Friends, that cartels will be back in business when Biden becomes president, saying the groups are already ready for immigration reforms put in place by President Donald Trump over the last four years to be destroyed.

“The cartels are celebrating what is happening in this country right now because they are back in business. The border numbers are already going up because they think Joe Biden is going to be the president and they are open for business and the flow has already started,” Homan said in the interview.

“It’s a Biden effect. It’s already happening,” he continued.


Homan served as acting ICE director under Trump and touted his success at stopping illegal immigration and keeping his promises on border security in the interview.
